For a couple of years I've been advocating a FAQ section because there is a wealth of information on this site. This wealth is obscured by the odd search engine that places primacy of information on how recently it was posted, not in optimally matching the search string content. Most folks don't know to use outside search engines to search MS. That should be the first article in a MS FAQ: Searching Mooneyspace What I observe is n00bs join MS, get excited about all things Mooney, ask questions that are frequently answered by other n00bs, poorly. That is unless @carusoam gets to it first. The problem lies in the fact that most likely there is a thread that answers their question expertly. Thinking to the future, I still think having a place where threads that contain mostly complete re-hashes of commonly asked questions with a chain of good answers should be collated in a FAQ section. In the absence of a FAQ, would it be possible to nominate threads to that level? Would it be possible to change the thread name somehow to indicate that it is worthy of reading by nOObs? Maybe we could have a "spring clean" where good, informative, threads are nominated, and those deemed by old-timers (not me) to be worthy are put in a FAQ section of MS. Just an idea. I'd be happy to help. I'm sure others would too. After 2-1/2 years of actively monitoring this site, it is tough to see the same questions being asked repeatedly and the quality of the answer depends on who is answering. What folks get now ranges from good, to bad, to potentially dangerous, and occasionally excellent. Well, we have some threads with excellent answers on this site. They have become needles in the MS haystack. I think it is time for a FAQ section. Another benefit: it will free up more time for us to resolve important issues like ROP/LOP operations, cloth vs. leather, two-vs-three blades, the fate of the Mooney factory, and the effectiveness of @Marauder's loading strategy on CG during boarding.
